1/23 Games
2 games tonight with their potential RPI impacts:
Creighton @ St John's
Cre current 35- win 32 loss 42
SJ current 80- win 71 loss 85
Providence @ Nova
PC current 36- win 23 loss 36
Nova current 2- win 2 loss 6

The Creighton/St John's game is really interesting. For the tiers in RPI- it'd be better for the league if St John's actually won this one- make road games with St John's tier 1 games. But it's a HUGE game IMO for Creighton.

You would think. But St John's has to beat someone(right?)

Under Chris Mullin, St. John's is 3-21 in the month of January.
(All three wins came last season.)

Yea, this year collapsed fast for St John's. They went from possible tourney team to potentially having Mullin being removed in a little over a month.

yeah if you had told me a month ago they'd need to be going 7-3 last 10 games to just have a chance at the NIT- I'd have said you were insane.

St. John's was going to be heavily reliant on their backcourt of Ponds & Lovett this year. With Lovett out since November, the team is having a tough year.
They also lost some of their depth when 4 star freshman Sydney Wilson immediately transferred to UConn.

yeah but even vs Arizona St they seemed like they were going to be at least competitive and win some games. But 9 straight losses? Just amazing.

RE: 1/23 Games
I wonder if Mullin considers leaving after this year. He doesn't need the money, nor would he be short on job opportunities in the NBA if he were to leave his alma mater. I think he is still growing and learning as a head coach, but St. Johns - even in the Lavin years - just cannot seem to get the pieces together to create a sustained run. Players either get hurt or transfer out. It's not like they aren't recruiting well (under either Mullin or Lavin). There's always just one piece or component missing it appears.

I agree. Just something seems really off there right now. Can't put the finger on it, but they're kind of the opposite of Butler- Butler always gets more out of what they have, while St John's always gets less out of what they have.
